Hey, Mr. Devil, let me make this very clear to you. Just get this through your head. Just because God has allowed this trial or misfortune to come upon me does not give you the license to go on the rampage in my life.
I know that you have assembled all of your evil forces to give them additional assignments concerning my life. Saying to them, “Our plan has worked. God has forsaken her. Let us go for the kill. Take everything she owns or better yet, destroy her completely”.
Only in your dreams Mr. Devil! Do you hear me? Only in your dreams! I’m not at all sorry to burst your bubble because you are certainly in for a rude awakening. Hear this loud and clear, GOD HAS NOT FORSAKEN ME. He is with me always even to the end of time. God still loves me and he will always love me. What shall separate me from the love of God? Surely, none of your cheap and cowardly activities.
There’s an adage, “when it rains, it pours”. Well, presently, it is only raining. I can assure you that it will not pour. Even if it pours, my God is quite capable of stopping it. Remember, he parted the red sea and ordered the winds and the waves to be still. Which means, that your little rain, (or should I say drizzle) is not a problem for him.
I have had trials and tribulations before; they came and they went and I’m still standing. Therefore, this too will pass.
You can’t deceive me into directing my anger at God anymore. I have ceased to blame him for all of my misfortunes because I have come to realize that if anyone hates me, it is you. You hate me with a passion. Does it really matter to me? No! Should I be concerned or shake in my boots? I don’t think so, because as long as Jesus loves me, it is of no significance who hates me. His love is unparalleled to any other love. His love does not fluctuate; it is dependable, unconditional and rewarding.
You know what, you poorly informed short-sighted devil, God allowed you to attack me because he wants to refine me. This is for my own good. If you only knew that you are assisting God in transforming and preparing me to wreak havoc in your kingdom of darkness, you would have aborted your useless mission when it was only an idea.
When things are in a state of disarray, people often say, “The devil is busy”. “I know this must be very motivating to you, Mr. Devil but don’t fool yourself any further. You are not busy with me or anything that concerns me. Listen, if you really want to get busy, you better get busy with packing your bags to flee because you are fighting a lost battle. You see, you lost the battle many years ago when Jesus died for me. When will you come to terms with defeat?
Like silver, God puts me through the fire to purify me until he sees his reflection in me and when he has achieved that effect, then I shall emerge and become an enhanced vessel for him.
And when that happens Mr. Devil, YOU WILL HAVE YOUR OWN HELL TO PAY!!
